Earlier this month, Adidas (the NBA’s official on-court apparel supplier) unveiled uniform and apparel designs for the upcoming 2015 NBA All-Star Game. The uniforms pay homage to the game’s host city — New York City.

David Cho, who oversees the NBA partnership with Adidas said, “It’s simple and timeless. It’s a nod to the history, culture and style of New York City basketball.”The uniforms are relatively plain and have many changes from those of previous years.

Since the 1960s, the NBA has had the conference identifiers “East” and “West” on its All-Star Game jerseys, but that distinction is missing from the uniforms this year. Instead, players from the Western Conference will wear black, while those from the Eastern Conference will wear white. Accessories like headbands, arm bands and more will use the traditional color scheme: red for the West and blue for the East.

Additionally, for the first time ever, the uniforms will include the first and last name of the player on the back of the jersey. The first name will be above the number and the last name will be below it.

As of Wednesday when the final out of the 2014 World Series was caught by Pablo Sandoval of the San Francisco Giants, Alex Rodriguez’s one-year suspension officially ended. Rodriguez is finally off baseball’s restricted list, and has been reinstated to the New York Yankee’s roster.

Rodriguez, 39, was unable to play the entirety of the 2014 season due to a suspension following Major League Baseball’s investigation into the Biogenesis case.

A-rod has $61 million and three years remaining on his contract with the Yankees. The deal was negotiated after the 2007 season, and as part of that deal, Rodriguez can earn an additional $6 million if he hits just six more home runs to tie with Willie Mays for fourth on the all-time list with 660.

Even despite the heated and long appeals process, the Yankees have no indicated that they will release Rodriguez, but if they did decide to, they would owe him his entire salary regardless. Officials with the Yankees admitted that if A-Rod can still play, then they will take him back for 2015.

According to ESPN, A-Rod will be replacing Jeter as the Yankee’s lead character in 2015.
